Judge rejects Uden’s attempt to withdraw guilty plea

RIVERTON – After retracting the confession that landed him in prison, convicted triple-murderer Gerald Uden will not get another chance in Fremont County District Court.

Judge Jason Conder denied 77-year-old Uden’s request to withdraw the guilty plea made nearly six years ago.

Uden remains at the Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution in Torrington.

In his denial, Conder addressed the case that frustrated local and state law enforcement for 33 years following the September 1980 disappearance of 32-year-old Virginia Uden and her sons Richard, 11, and Regan,10.

The judge wrote that Gerald Uden’s motion to withdraw his guilty plea was denied because of temporal jurisdiction, saying that the motion is “untimely.”

Wyoming law states that convicted defendants have five years to appeal after sentencing. Uden was sentenced Nov. 12, 2013, after he confessed to shooting his estranged wife with her heirloom hunting rifle, then shooting one of his adopted sons before chasing down the other.

“Richard was standing

Crime: new books by MK Hill, Linwood Barclay and Johana Gustawsson

BOOK OF THE MONTH
The Bad Place by MK Hill
After a lovely day out in Southend-on-Sea six teenagers were kidnapped by a knife-wielding sicko in orange shades who jumped into their minibus and drove them to a deserted farmstead in deepest Essex.

Two weeks later only five of them escaped from the cellar where they had been half-starved. Every year since that day in the early 1990s the survivors — each one suffering in their own way — have met to commemorate their dead friend, Becky. Unfortunately, on the evening of their latest reunion, a young girl goes missing round the corner. Detective Inspector Sasha Dawson, a rookie PC at the time Becky had her throat slit, is determined to rescue the latest abductee and nail the culprit.…

Rose West’s former tenant reveals killer’s revolting daily habit: ‘Vile, vile vile!’

In Howard Sounes’ ‘Unheard: The Fred and Rose West Tapes’ podcast, she explained how Mrs West’s behaviour “struck her as odd”.

Ms Brett said: “I remember going down to do some washing, I had my little basket under my arm, I gave her a knock. She opened the door in what I would call babydoll pyjamas, modern lingerie.

“The kind of thing you would only wear in the bedroom – you don’t open your front door to someone wearing that.

“Straight away, without drawing my eyes to it, [I saw] she never had underwear on.

“I was a little uncomfortable with that.”
